For forumers wanting to see more of Pakistan that ISNT shown by world media, please go to the Pakistan Forums of SSC. We have a WHOLE SECTION full of pictures and threads you wouldnt see elsewhere. You can find a lot of great pictures of our northern areas too over there.

Pakistan isnt just what you see on CNN or hear in terms of some suicide bomb blast or something. This country has amazing diversity in culture and landscapes and is just a very different experience in itself. So find out more about it, I am sure it will make an impression on you.

This pic is mind-boggling. I count 8 peaks in this pic above 7000 meters/24000feet, all taller than the tallest peak in North America (McKinley, Alaska).

Thats what you get from having two of the world's tallest mountain ranges in the north of the country, the Karakorum and the Himalayas. 6 of the world's 15 tallest mountains are in Pakistan and Pakistani Kashmir.

I am sure what you say is true. Unfortunately, negative perception of Pakistan, thanks to the popular media in the West fixated only on the unflattering aspects of that country, seems to have so firmly ingrained among us that we are almost unwilling to accept any depiction that is upbeat. After all, didn't we see how two forumers attempted to derail that ongoing thread about Islamabad?

I can assure you though that the breathtaking beauty of the northern areas of Pakistan is no secret among serious hikers, trekkers and travelers trotting the globe. And, contrary to the common notion of an average person on the street, their travel blogs tell us tales of embarrassingly friendly and hospitable people in that part of the world.
